Welcome

Our vision is to provide outstanding healthcare to our community, delivered with PRIDE. 

Working closely with our partner organisations, our 6,500 staff and volunteers care for a diverse community of 750,000 people.

Our PRIDE values of Passion; Responsibility; Innovation; Drive and Empowerment inspire us and keep our patients at the heart of everything we do.

Our hospitals

We run two hospitals - King George Hospital in Goodmayes and Queen’s Hospital in Romford.

We also serve clinics across outer north east London and run some services from Barking Hospital.

Our hospital sites are smoke free – read A breath of fresh air - our vision for smoke free hospital sites.pdf [pdf] 1MB. This means that visitors, patients, visitors and staff are not permitted to smoke on Trust grounds.

In addition, we are proud to boast a regional neuroscience centre, renowned as a centre of excellence; a cancer centre; and a Hyper Acute Stroke Unit at Queen’s to provide specialist care.

Our partners

To provide the very best care to our patients, we also work closely with our health and social care partners so that together, as one healthcare system, we work as efficiently and effectively as possible for the communities we serve.

As we are a university hospital we also work very closely with our academic partners.
